Maintanence Schedules for Rolls

Maintanence Schedules for Rolls

Dear All,

I am trying to set up a system of maintaining a complex array of rolls used within my plant. There are some 150 different types some with suction some ceramic some steel and others with speciality coating. The problem I have is that there is no real scheduled maintanence on them and we are forever being caught out with breakdowns due to unmaintained rolls. I was just wondering if anyone has any software that they would recommend or a spread sheet that has similar layout.

Thanks  in advance


RE: Maintanence Schedules for Rolls

There are many ready made computerized maintenance programs on the market. A goggle search will find many. The price varies with the amount of information required.
You can do a simple program in Excel or a more complicated one in Access.

Here is a simple example of one done in Excel:
In the first columns identify the product with number and serial numbers etc. Next part depends if you want to track on hourly or calendar basics. For hourly something like this may work
Total Time    1005        
Done At  Interval   Next Due      TimeRemaining
1000       100        ยจ 1100           95
Formula for next due and time remaining are
=B5+C5    =D5-$C$2
Your total time is just a running total of time in use.
For a calendar basic
DateLastDone Interval(months)    NextDue  TimeRemaining    
12-Sep-04      24           12-Sep-06     715Days    
Formula for NextDue and TimeRemaining are
=G6+(H6*30.4166667)    =I6-$F$3
 Where 30.416 is the average number of days in a month. F3 contains Today().
You can use the data base functions to sort when the next item is due and condition formatting to highlight next due items.
